Dan asked a question concerning the Datarover a while back, the answer to which 
will affect my interest in possibly picking one of these up.  I'm pestering you 
about this on-list because more than one NewtonTalker might be interested in the 
answer and there are few things more boring than fielding the same question 
repeatedly (reading a post from me being one of the exceptions, of course).

>Oh one other question, did it have a custom battery?  Or could it run on AA's?

I suspect the Datarover lacks the capability to do the latter, but seeing as how 
I know even less about the Datarover than I do about the Newton (if such a thing 
is possible), I'd be grateful if you could set me straight.
